 | Petaling Jaya, Malaysia | 6 May 2016 | Asia Samachar |


The state level Vaisakhi celebration for Selangor will take place in Petaling Jaya tomorrow.

The event, organised by the state government, is this year spearheaded by the Selangor Sikh Association (SSA). Last year, Coalition of Malaysian Sikh Organisations (CMSO) took the lead.

Selangor state executive member and assemblyman V Ganabatirau is one of the key members from the state government for the function.

Selangor Menteri Besar Mohamed Azmi Ali has been invited as the special guest, thought the organisers are unable to confirm his participation.

At the same event last year, Azmin, who was unable to attend in person, said in his speech that the state government had agreed to make the Vaisakhi open house an annual state-sponsored event from 2016 onwards.

The half-day celebration, from 4pm to 12 midnight, will be held at Padang Timur at Jalan Yong Shook Lin.
